Abstract:

This symposium will gather five preeminent sport psychology practitioners to discuss the key events throughout their careers that influenced the development of their theories of performance excellence. The presenters are all from the first generation of sport psychology practitioners, and thus relied upon their own life and sport/performance experiences, generalizing educational experiences to applied sport psychology, and thousands of hours of observing, interacting with, and consulting coaches, athletes, and performers to develop their unique and ecologically valid approaches to sport psychology consultation (Aoyagi & Poczwardowski, 2012). Through the presentation of their aha! moments and significant career events resulting in the evolution of ideas and paradigm shifts, the audience will gain insight into the complex and ongoing process of incorporating theory into the development of one’s philosophy and guiding model of sport psychology service delivery (Poczwardowski & Sherman, 2011; Poczwardowski, Sherman, & Henschen, 1998; Poczwardowski, Sherman, & Ravizza, 2004).
